This self drive family friendly trip is sure to show you the Pyrenees in a different light as you experience the lush green landscapes and striking mountains. The trip encompasses fantastic views as we traverse high altitude mountain passes that serve the ski resorts during the winter and were once used by smugglers in and out of Andorra and the opportunity experience Europe's longest toboggan run all based from the Spanish town of La Seu d'Urgell .
Situated between France and Spain, Andorra is a principality with a rich historic and religious heritage. Andorra is well know for being a shoppers paradise due to low local tax rates. All this fabulous heritage is nestled amongst the Pyrenean mountains with strong plenty of Catalonian influence in the food and culture.
As a young family ourselves we have created this family friendly adventure to balance the amount of driving with other activities that are sure to keep your little ones entertained.
